Michael Ying Yang studied Communication Engineering at Sichuan University, China. From 2005 to 2008, he studied Communication and Information System at Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, where he received Ms.Eng. in 07/2008.
From 2008 to 2012, he was a Research Assistant at Department of Photogrammetry, Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Universität Bonn.
He was involved in the DFG project 'Semi-automatic generation of highly detailed textured building models', which is part of the Sino-German bundle project 'Interoperation of 3D Urban Geoinformation'.
He received the Dr.-Ing. (summa cum laude) in 12/2011 with PhD thesis 'Hierarchical and Spatial Structures for Interpreting Images of Man-made Scenes Using Graphical Models'.
Since 05/2012, he works as PostDoc at the Institute for Information processing (TNT), Leibniz Universität Hanover. His research interests include multiple object tracking and cosegmentation, graphical models, and classification.
- Probabilistic Graphical Models
- Scene Understanding
- Object Segmentation and Tracking
- Digital Photogrammetry
From June to August, I have been a Visiting Scholar at GRASP Lab with Prof. Kostas Daniilidis, University of Pennsylvania.
TNT will co-organize the ACCV2014 Workshop: Video Segmentation in Computer Vision , which has been accepted as a full-day workshop on November 2, 2014, in conjunction with ACCV in Singapore.
TNT will co-organize the ECCV2014 Workshop: Graphical Models in Computer Vision , which has been accepted as a full-day workshop on September 7, 2014, in conjunction with ECCV in Zurich, Switzerland.
TNT hosted the CVPR2014 Workshop: Multi-Sensor Fusion for Outdoor Dynamic Scene Understanding (MSF 2014), which has been accepted as half-day workshop on June 28, 2014, in conjunction with CVPR in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
- TNT hosted the ISPRS Workshop on Image Sequence Analysis for Object and Change Detection (ISA13). It took place in Antalya, TURKEY, on 11. November 2013.
